But before you decide to do this type of facial treatment it’s important to know the basics of it first. What are the benefits and are there any risks involved? Find out more below.
What Causes the Signs of Aging?
When you’re young there are certain elements that don’t affect your appearance until you get older. There are chemicals in the body that slowly diminish over time so it stops combating the signs of aging.
The body’s natural supply of elastin and collagen decreases so your skin will start to lose its firmness as you get older. Additionally, Stress, sun exposure and poor diet can all cause early signs of aging. Your skin may start to look drier and it will lose its radiance.
Facial aesthetic treatment can help reverse the effects of aging or even sun damage.
Beginners Guide to Facial Aesthetics
Facial aesthetics utilise clinically proven injections specifically formulated to do one of the following:
• Provide more volume to the face
• Accentuate facial contours
• Block nerve signals to muscles to relax facial expressions
• Smooth out wrinkles
You may not have known this but dentists are exceptionally qualified to perform facial aesthetics. This is because dentists have extensive knowledge of facial anatomy so they’re able to perform facial treatments with precision.
Types of Facial Aesthetic Treatments
There are two types of facial aesthetic treatments to select from: derma fillers and anti-aging injections also known as wrinkle reduction or anti-wrinkle treatment.
Facial Aesthetic Injections/ Anti-wrinkle Treatment
Wrinkles around the eyes and mouth are early signs of aging. These lines appear due to the contractions of facial muscles that you use in your expressions. Some lines such as frown lines can make you look tired or angry.
The solution is to use anti-aging injections because it can be administered to different areas of your face to soften the effects of wrinkles. These injections temporarily block nerve signals to the affected area to stop the muscles from tightening. Where is the Injection Treatment Used?
Since lines and wrinkles form mostly around the eyes and on the forehead these injections are used to treat these common areas. You can also use injections to lift the top lip for a more appealing smile. Another common way to use these injections is for excessive sweating under the arms.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that’s formed inside the human body. It helps the skin look healthy, youthful and hydrated. However, as you age the hyaluronic acid levels in your body start to decrease.
The best way to treat this is by using dermal fillers to replenish hyaluronic acid in the affected areas where you’re aging the most. These fillers add volume to the structure of your face and also rejuvenate the skin. What’s more dermal fillers can be used to fill in wrinkles and redefine your facial features.
It must be noted that these fillers don’t last and so they will dissolve over time. However, the fillers can be visible for up to ten months. So it’s a treatment that lasts for an excellent period of time.
Where are Dermal Fillers Used?
Dermal fillers aren’t simply meant for the face. There are several key areas on the body where dermal fillers can be used such as the hands, feet, décolletage and even your earlobes.
The reason people get treatment on their hands is because of sun damage or aging. Rapid weight gain or loss can affect the aesthetics of your décolletage so dermal fillers are used to redefine this area.
The Advantages of Facial Aesthetics
One benefit you’ll love about facial aesthetic treatments is that it’s virtually painless. You may feel mild discomfort from the injections but there will be no increased pain during treatment.
Since treatments are non-surgical your recovery time is short. You can go to work the next day or attend events as normal after your session.
With facial aesthetic treatment, you will notice subtle differences in your skin. You’ll look healthier which in turn will improve your self-esteem. These treatments can also combat the signs of aging so you will look more youthful and vibrant.
Are There Any Dangers to be Aware Of?
To avoid damage to the skin and face you must never have facial aesthetics done by an unqualified practitioner. Your treatments must be done in a clean and safe environment with clinically proven injections and fillers.
But that’s not to say that the treatment doesn’t have any side effects.
You may experience one of the following after treatment:
Rare side effects may include:
- Injury to blood vessels
- Tissue death due to blocked blood flow
While facial aesthetic treatment is generally safe taking extra precautionary measures can prevent unwanted side effects. It’s important never to purchase fillers online and be sure to tell your practitioner about any supplements or medication you’re currently taking.
Additionally, you should avoid using fillers or injections if your skin is inflamed from a rash, allergy hives or acne. Ask your practitioner about what ingredients are used to make the treatments and avoid using the fillers or injections if you’re allergic to any of them.
